  • UPDATE, 11/9: As of November 8, the USGS has successfully restored all of the operational gages that stopped transmitting due to an issue with the satellite telemetry system that records and transmits data. The USGS will now focus on restoring other equipment that experienced the telemetry issues, including about 85 rapid deployment gages that are used periodically for emergency response. Read more

Current Conditions for Minnesota: Groundwater -- 13 site(s) found


Water levels below land surface (BLS) are accurate to ±0.01 feet; differences are also accurate to ±0.01 feet. Water levels above the North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (sea level) are calculated by subtracting water levels, BLS from the land surface elevation (accuracy is site-dependent).

Groundwater temperature is accurate to between ±0.1–1.0°C depend on site; differences are accurate to ±0.1°C. Temperature is depth-dependent. Therefore, temperatures at different depths are stored in separate data sets, which specify the measurement depth.

Precipitation is accurate to ±0.01 inches except during freezing periods (about December through early April). Rain gages are unheated and uncovered. Precipitation recorded during freezing periods can be caused by snow (previously accumulated in the rain gage) melting in the gage funnel during warm periods and does NOT represent actual precipitation at the time of recording. Precipitation recorded during freezing periods likely underestimates actual precipitation because the gage funnel may be full of snow (preventing further accumulation) or because snow in the funnel may sublimate or blow out instead of melting through the gage.
